Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Structural Engineering at Cornell

CORNELL UNIVERSITY School of Civil and Environmental Engineering announces a tenure-track faculty position in structural engineering starting in Fall 2012-2013.

At Cornell, structural engineering is conceived of broadly, to encompass structures across scales where well understood physical laws apply. We are currently seeking a person in stochastic mechanics, with the ability to develop and use modern computational tools to solve real problems and to advance both the understanding and design of complex structural systems across a range of materials.

The successful candidate for this position is expected to conduct a vigorous funded research program seeking innovative solution methodologies to challenging problems in stochastic mechanics. The candidate will also be expected to rapidly become an effective teacher in both graduate and undergraduate courses in solid and structural mechanics, as well as specialty areas. Candidates must have a PhD in engineering or an allied field within the physical sciences.

Appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor is anticipated, but applications from candidates from all levels are welcomed. Applications will be held in strict confidence.

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who will create a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities and genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.
